Roland AIRA TR-8 Rhythm Performer

Roland have something of an enviable reputation when it comes to making influential drum sounds. Since the 1980s, products such as the TR-808 and TR-909 have elevated them to the highest standard amongst enthusiasts. The TR-8 continues that elevation with a mixture of genre-defining sounds and classic effects, triggered by solid and intuitive performance controls. In fact, the TR-8 is such an intuitive device that it is instantly perfect for live pattern manipulation and performance.

Every nuance and detail of the analog circuitry of Roland's legendary rhythm machines have been painstakingly recreated in the AIRA TR-8, straight from the original specification sheets of those great devices. With all of the boom and  snap of the 808, the thud of the 909 and the robotic click of an 808 rimshot or a classic 909 snare roll, the sound output of the TR-8 is fantastically satisfying. In addition to these familiar classic sounds, it features Tune and Decay knobs with dedicated Attack and Comp knobs for Bass and Snare drum modules, allowing for a fantastic range of sounds - from subtle, ambient percussion to pounding dance grooves.

The TR-8 features 16 kits and 11 instrument types with the ability to mix sources connected to the external inputs. Absolute flexibility over your mix is ensured thanks to two assignable analog outputs and full parallel outputs via USB.
The new Scatter function and per-step effects add even more tweaking capabilities to get the perfect, unique drum sound.

An evolved version of classic TR-REC rhythm programming allows for intuitive and creative pattern creation that is easier and more exciting than ever.
